The Vans Authentic in purple and black is a reimagined canvas low-top shoe from the California skate and lifestyle footwear company. The Vans Authentic has a legion of followers thanks to both its comfort and durability. Easy to pair with just about anything, the Authentic seen here features a purple canvas upper with a contrasting black pattern printed onto the canvas. Subtle white exposed stitching appears throughout, including on the forefoot and heel. A white Vans hang tab sits on the forefoot with a white rubber midsole with black foxing and gum bottom putting the finishing touches on the look.
